Patriotic punters are rallying behind Buffering to win Sunday’s Hong Kong International Sprint at Sha Tin.
The Buff has been backed from $9 into $8.50 at Sportingbet.com.au and is proving the most popular horse in early betting.
“Once the word spread that he’d settled in well the money started coming for him,” said Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown.
“Obviously we expect Buffering to attract a lot of interest but at this stage we’ve taken ten times more money for him than what we have for the favourite.”
Aerovelocity remains the $5 top pick at Sportingbet in front of Lucky Nine ($6), Peniaphobia ($7.50) and Sole Power ($8).
George Ryder Stakes winner Gordon Lord Byron is rated a $15 chance.
